    We were planning on having one and have been telling people we would. But now we are reconsidering it (or at least I am). FI mom has offered to help pay (since she gave us a huge guest list if we have it). If we do it I want it to be very simple. nothing reception-y.
    I didn't want a big wedding and I don't really want a big party either. As others have said, we would rather save the money for a house.

      I'm torn on this also. We want to have one and I was hoping to have a dinner, but the prices I've been quoted are outrageous. I might as well just have a huge wedding reception with the prices they are quoting me. I thought about renting out a lounge and having drinks and hor dorours (can't spell) but even that is getting pricey when I talked to the owner. We thought about a backyard thing but wanted to get married in Nov/Dec and it's way too cold here for something outside. Ugh, too many decisions.

        We are having an AHR. Initially we were having two (one in SC where we live and one in MD where my family lives). However, we are just having one now b/c most of my family/extended family are actually coming to the wedding.

        Tom is part owner of an Oyster Bar/Restaurant here in SC, so we are closing it down from 2-6pm on a Saturday about a month after our wedding ... and having the AHR on the rooftop deck there. It will be very casual and laid back. Low Country Boil and open bar. I'll wear my wedding dress again ... just b/c I want to :-).

        We are incuding the DW and AHR info on our invitations and asking for an RSVP for both ... since many people who can't attend the DW should be able to come to the AHR.
